PCN from AS parking

Recommended Posts

Hi

I received a Parking Charge Notice on my windscreen on holiday.

We had purchased a ticket and displayed it correctly, but it was displayed backwards on the dashboard.

 

I have a pic of how it was which, along with speaking to the next car, suggests it fell forward with the wind as the door closed. Yes, I know we should have triple checked but getting two young children out of the car and raincoats, bags on a miserable wet day we didn't.

 

we now have a £100 charge notice.

I have read on forums to wait for a Notice to Keeper (the parking company is member of IPC not BPA).

 

From my research I think the right thing to do is:

*Wait for Notice to Keeper, which should arrive by day 56

*Appeal, but do not disclose the driver

*Appeal with Independent Agency, as AS parking are likely to deny the appeal

 

Have I got this right?

I do feel quite anxious waiting when I have the ticket to prove I paid so am I better to appeal now?

 

IT does clearly state on their signs that ticket has to be displayed correctly, but it isn't a sticky ticket so Im guessing this problem has occurred quite often.

 

I have private plates which I need to put back on my car- will this effect the parking companys chance of getting details from DVLA?

Many thanks inadvance for all your help

 

Nic

You did pay for the time you were there so they have not lost any money. Just retain the ticket as proof.

NTK has to arrive within a certain time and MUST comply with certain provisions.

 

Also, as states, you already paid for the ticket, so theres nothing they can do anyway.

hang on to the ticket and the notice they slapped on the car. Post up the latter if you can with the reg number and any barcodes etc redacted. the reason for ticketing yu must match one of the terms in the contract offered by the signage.

Location of car park please

Thanks!

Finally got the NTK- on day 86! I’ve checked the criteria and it seems to include everything, apart from bring after 56 dats and doesn’t provide any evidence. Neither does it offer a discount for prompt payment.

What do I do now?

Thanks

you keep it safe and studiously ignore them for the moment.

 

You also make a complaint to th DVLA about the obtaining of your keeper details without reasonable cause and then complain to the ICO about the DVLA for allowing these bandits to obtain your details without showing they had a reason to do so.

 

The DVLA caims thyey have a quality asurbnace to make sure tht companies dont misuse the facilities but that involves asking 1 parking co to tell them why they got the details regarding 2 applications in a year when over 300000 applications for data are made and even then the DVLA doesnt follow up what the parking co says, it takes them at their word.

 

Post up the NTK so we can advise you on what else they have got wrong, it is usual to be more than just that.

Ok quick update- so I now have a final notice for payment, stating that if I don’t pay within 14 days they will commence enforcement action ie. debt recovery and or county court proceedings. Just checking I’m doing the right thing by ignoring this and any other letters until I (hopefully don’t!) receive a LBC?

 

Many thanks

I’m sorry I haven’t got round to that yet- life took over and As I hadn’t heard I naively thought they may have dropped it! But my car in having service today so going to spend the day doing those letters- are there any templates? 

Also I have had my first debt letter and it says if you don’t believe you’re liable to call them, as if I don’t then I am accepting liability. Do I still ignore this?? Many thanks

Ignore the DCA's letters. They cant do a single thing, although they will claim they can.  And if you dont contact them, then youre admitting youre liable? In what reality do they think that is realistic or logical?

of course you ignore the dca. they cnat create a liability by inertia, it is just a way they have devised to egt you to drop yourself or someone else in it.

TYhey are relaint on your ignorance to earn themselves and their paymasters a crust. gte reading up on parking and dca's and you will then know how it all works.

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

    • I was talked into signing up with Future Comms (future-comms.co.uk) who cold-called me to change my mobile contract to them, via 02, rather than EE. I have a small business (only me!) and it's a business contract. True, the 4G network is better for my area. This company seemed to be a marketing set-up for various telecoms companies, so I assumed anything I signed would be with 02 and didn't think it might be a problem.
       
      They sent an email whilst I was on the phone to set up the direct debit mandate with my bank which I signed electronically. That was the first, of many, problems I found. Apparently THAT was my contract, binding me to 3 years and no 'cooling off' period, because I was a 'business' (meaning any consumer rights did not apply). When I subsequently asked in writing for a copy of my contract, that is what they sent - when I argued it was a DD mandate they insisted it was my contract!
       
      2 days later they asked for my phone details to get it unlocked which I sent. 10 days later, EE closed my account, so I changed the SIM card to 02 that had come a few days before. No network! They had done nothing about unlocking it. Fortunately I was lucky with EE who managed to give me the right codes, rather than the usual 10 days to go through Samsung.
       
      By this time I was suspicious of their set-up and wanted to cancel. As I said earlier, I found myself trapped into a 3 year contract with no 14 day cooling off period (they don't offer that). Promises to deal with my complaints never happened, promised return calls neither....and on and on.
       
      Ofcom's rules apply to consumers and small businesses (under 10 employees), yet this shower don't acknowledge that. They just repeat and repeat that I am a business so it doesn't apply. To cancel the contract I have to pay the full 3 year's fees!!
       
      I would like to know if others have had similar experiences? Or does anyone know how I can maybe declare the 'contract' unenforceable? I have never before been locked into something without a clear written contract, with t&c's! And, yes, I have asked, and yes, I have been ignored.
